Where..oh where is my Maryam Tank???

Okay...I NEVER vent like this..never say anything much about anyone(mostly), super easy going.. but I need to say something because I think sooooo much time has gone by that it just seems completely wrong and ridiculous at this point. Ugh.
I had a person who will remain nameless.. try to track down this anthro item because I had called everywhere..and I mean everywhere..trying to locate my size and the color I wanted.
I requested the service from "the person" on April 16th..pd. about 40.00...remember I'm super easy going.
By April 22nd I personally found the item myself!..quickly emailed the person and let them know which store it was located at..everything. They emailed me back and said to put it on hold for them and they will call and pay for it. I could have gotten it myself and had it sent to me in a weeks time..but I had already paid this person for the service and figured might as well do the whole transaction.
So..its been since April 22nd and I still do not have my tank!!
As of today, that's 6 weeks...and I will even take out a week or two for shipping, the tank traveling around, etc..seriously?????
After friendly emails by me wondering how things are going..when it will be mailed..not stalking mind you... I am the one who is initiating all these emails. (I've been a long time off and on seller on ebay and ALWAYS communicate with people timely..when I mailed it etc..common courtesy to me :-)
I finally had it and sent an email that was tactful..but seriously irritated with the whole transaction..and I got a very apologetic email back...( "I must not have gotten your emails..I would never just not send it..so sorry"..etc..etc..etc.)
I asked recently if she could possibly send it by May 28th so I can have it by this Sat June 4th and was told "of course! no problem"..I have since gotten no mailing info..which was promised..I emailed her on Sat. to see if she sent it..and she told me on the 30th that she did mail it and would send me shipping info...I sent ANOTHER freakin email today to find out what's going on...because I haven't gotten shipping info at all from her. WTH?...so tomorrow is Sat. I'm hoping it shows??
Am I overreacting??!! I say no but I feel crazy!!!..and its been 6 weeks..isn't that enough time to get an item and ship it half way across the US..its not even all the way:-)
Oh and there is damage on it I found out later..supposed to be taken for a damage discount???..

Okay...sorry. I just had to say it..it has not been worth it to me whatsoever to have someone locate an item for me and I will NEVER do it again...in the future, I'll be extra patient and wait..or I just won't get the item.
Lesson learned.

Wow, sorry you're having problems with this person. I don't think you're overreacting at all! The whole thing sounds shady and I probably would have just demanded my money back at this point, or filed a PP claim.
6 weeks is waaay to long to wait, even if the top had to travel around the world!

That is ridiculous that it is taking so long to get your top. I would be reluctant to use a shopping service unless I knew they had exceptional feedback...but then again I'm sure you wouldn't have used them if you knew nothing about them. I guess there is no way at this point to get your money back?

That's what I was thinking too...! In the email I sent that was tactful but irritated..I did mention the pp claim thing..which I have never had to do ever with anyone..and that if there was something wrong just let me know and I'll take my $ back...just bizarre I tell ya.

I think if I do not get it this weekend..I will have to ask for my money back.
This person has all good reviews for their shopping service and is pretty well known without naming names. I sort of feel bad..but seriously if you can't follow through with what you state in your service even just halfway..then maybe you shouldn't do it if your that busy,etc?
Maybe if she told me..hey..this could take up to two months or more for you to get your item then I could have decided whether to do it or not..but I found the item myself a week later and told her about it..so I did the work..lol...and I still didn't get it.

I kind of wonder if they are just giving you the run around so that it will be too late for you to file a claim with PP

Wow still no tank??? Kara email her and say that if you don't get your tank that you'll file a PP claim and do it. So sorry to hear that you're having so much trouble with this person. I hope she hadn't ruined the appeal of the tank for you.

Remember that email I showed you..that I sent? I did change it up a bit and did state that if I don't get it I'll have no other choice but to file a claim(which I've never in my ebay life..every have to do..fingers crossed**)..
I should show you the email I got back from her after I sent it. It was all kinds of apologetic in every way... that was on May 21st to be exact which was two weeks ago. At that point she said there was damage on it too(new problem to me)..(fixable on a seam)..and now she said she will take it for a damage discount back then..which supposedly happened on May 27th...who knows.
I'm hoping it shows tomorrow...if not, I don't want the damn thing.
Just my money back...geesh I hate drama! lol

Yeah well I'd just file the claim if you don't get it by tomorrow cuz your time is running out. Besides, you did warn her that you would do so in your last correspondence with her so she knew. It's not like 6 weeks wasn't enough time as Tami said..it could've traveled the world in that time!

i too, am having problems with kim from anthroholic.

i don't want to put her name out there, but since somebody already mentioned it and there seems to be a general pattern regarding her services...

i've been waiting since april 16th, and have not gotten a single update from her. i've been emailing her for the last 3 weeks after i was promised a update within 24 hours, and still no response. i'm not happy that she has the time to blog on a daily basis, yet does not have the time to take care of her "clients". i'm close to the point where i'm going to file a paypal claim

eta: fuck, i just realized i'm totally over the 45 day claim period. i'm going to have to do this through a credit card chargeback

It's 45 business days too I think.

Oh wow, so it really is her. What a disappointment. If this has happened to two of our members HERE, I can only imagine the problem is more widespread. Wow.

So...if I don't get it..if any see's a grey maryam tank in XS..I'm interested... lol

I kept from naming only because I don't want to get in trouble for any kind of slander :-)
I was just stating some facts and hopefully that's okay to do. Eeeep.

Ugh. Kara, I think it's a good thing you brought this up because apparently you're not the only one experiencing a similar situation.

I know Kim indicated on her blog she's had a rough time in her personal life recently or whatever, but if that's the case she shouldn't be offering her services right now. Period.

I'm so sorry you girls are going through this. I hope you can get it all worked out.
